Men's soccer enters national poll during final week of regular season

Western Michigan men’s soccer has entered the United Soccer Coaches top 25 poll for the first time this season as they head into their final week of the regular season. The Broncos come into the poll ranked No. 25 after receiving votes in last week’s poll.  

The Broncos have hit their stride at the right time of the season, winning seven of their last nine games. After an 0-1-1 start to Mid-American Conference play, Western has rattled off two straight victories and are tied for second place in the conference behind reigning champion, Akron.

WMU is led by freshmen midfielder Charlie Sharp who has a team-high in goals (7) and points (16). Senior forward Anthony Bowie is close behind with 14 points on six goals and two assists. Freshmen Brennan Creek and Max Keenan pace the Broncos in assists with six each.

Western will face-off against Southern Illinois Edwardsville for its last regular season game on Saturday at 1 p.m. at the WMU Soccer Complex. The winner of the match will take sole possession of second place in the MAC.
